    Hi, My small loft header tank in the loft is overflowing when the hot water/heating is switched on. It’s fine when the heating/water are off, but starts up again when it comes on again. It started with a few drips a few weeks ago to a slow flow now, which lasts for about 10-15 minutes when the heating/water initially comes on and then stops dripping again. Any ideas?

    Hi all, I have a small plumbing job to do for which I need to drain the radiators in my property. There are only two radiators, that are fed by a communal boiler, and pass through an immersion heater. I have already identified the isolation valves for the primary flow and the return to my property. I don't have access to the communal boiler, or the specifications for it, and the building manager hasn't responded to my e-mails in months. What I need to know is, how do I isolate my radiator system from the communal boiler in order to drain the radiators and work on the pipes, and then safely open the flow again once the work is done? I have no pressure gauge in my property, is pressure something I need to worry about? Or is it as simple as turning off the flow and return to my property, draining the radiators, doing the work, and then turning them on again and bleeding the radiators until they refill? I'd be very grateful to anyone that can help with this query.

    Hi, we recently moved into our current house. The bathroom has now an awful sewer smell. On inspection we found it to be coming from the shower drain (walk in shower - tiled floor). I lifted the grill and saw no water seal - no sitting pool of water - and it looks like the shower trap has been removed. Water flows directly down and so it looks like the smell is coming directly from the sewer. My newborn sleeps close by and so my wife is very worried now! However, I have no idea how to get this fixed/replaced as I can't find the brand name on any of the bathroom fixtures. Any help/advice hugely appreciated....

    I want to connect my hot and cold outdoor taps to one hose for washing the car etc . As they dont have an inbuilt non return valve cani just use a hoselock type non return valve on both taps , then connect to hose via a splitter/ y branch without any further plumbing. Also are they required on both taps, or should I have to replace both taps with built in valves?

    Hi I'm in my mid twenties years old and would love to start a career in Plumbing. What is the best way to getting qualified? I was told that City of Guilds is one of the best options for getting a qualification. Is this true? Whether it is or not, I would really appreciate some more information on this matter. The sooner I can start the better. Thanks in advance

    The cistern has been leaking into the pan constantly for ages, so today I’ve replaced the fill valve, the doughnut/ coupling washer and the flush valve. All working fine, except there is still a steady flow of water leaking into the pan as it was before. It’s driving me bonkers!! So the cistern leaks water out, then refills itself, then leaks, then refills...etc. Any ideas?

    Can this cause problems in my home as we are terraced houses?

    Asked by Patricia on 18th Feb 2021

    I want to change my passage radiator, we cut the water supply to the radiators, there was no running hot water and every radiator was off. We isolated the radiator that we wanted to take off. I'm on communal heating by the way, as we started to drain the water there was just loads coming out, we stopped at 2 buckets but more wanted to come, is this normal? Or have we done something wrong?
